We know the fifth season of The Hills, which premieres March 30, will be the last for its leading lady, Lauren Conrad. But will the show go on without her?
Asked about another season, executive producer Adam DiVello told E!, "I can’t even say if there is a next season. I have no information on The Hills beyond Lauren Conrad. We're focusing on this season, which will likely be our highest-rated yet."
Especially after MTV's gripping Season 5 trailer (below), showing that Lauren and Heidi Montag will cry and makeup and become BFFs again, right? Well ...
"What you see in the trailer is deceiving," DiVello said. "You'll see that in one of the first few episodes of the season, that when [Lauren and Heidi] wake up the next morning from that [reconciliation], things may not be as they had hoped."
"But it’s a rollercoaster ride for these two. They are at a point where they are ready to forgive each other, but there’s still this looming presence of Spencer Pratt in Heidi Montag’s life, and that’s the thing Lauren is dealing with the most."
This season's focus is on Lauren Conrad tying up loose ends and figuring out how to move on with her life after so many seasons in the spotlight.
"It's pretty surprising," DiVello said. "A lot of the characters on the show have started to come to the realization that we are getting to a point now in life where we can put the past behind us and move on, go our own way."
Meanwhile, Lauren Bosworth (Lo) takes a front seat this season with storylines around her new job (yes, she's working now) and her love life (finally)!
"Lo steps up this season more so than last," DiVello dished. "She's a single girl, so you'll see her dating a lot more, and still palling around with Lauren."
What do you think about this potentially being the last season of the hit series? Would you watch The Hills without Lauren Conrad?
